Juventus and Atalanta go toe-to-toe in the top-of-the-table clash at the Allianz Stadium as the hosts hope to replicate the same success from Coppa Italia’s encounter back in January when they utterly outplayed the Bianconeri, securing a 3-0 win.
After mathematically claiming their eight successive Serie A title, the hosts have failed to wrap up three points in three straight league outings (D1, L2), with both of those draws ending with the same 1-1 scoreline. Nonetheless, the Turin giants still boast by far the best SA home record (W15, D3) remaining the only Italian team that has yet to lose a home game this term. Notably, eight of those home triumphs have been accompanied by a clean sheet, with Massimiliano Allegri’s men netting 2+ match goals on 12 occasions in the process. But, the Bianconeri have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four home games across all competitions, scoring over 1.5 match goals twice in that period.
Meanwhile, unbeaten in their last 12 SA outings (W9, D3), the visitors hope to snap an eight-game SA away losing streak against Juventus and boost their chances of reaching the Champions League promotion. What’s more, La Dea’s impressive run of form has seen them pick up four wins on their last five SA road trips (W4, D1), with Gian Piero Gasperini’s players scoring 2+ match goals across all of those triumphs. A potential worry for the traveling side could be their inability to keep a clean sheet that has seen them concede at least one goal in six of their last seven away games across all competitions. Also, 26 of 44 goals Atalanta have conceded this term has come away from home (59.09%), with the Bergamo outfit allowing over 1.5 match goals in eight of 18 SA away fixtures.
